Green Man Charm Earrings – hand-made with Tibetan silver charms

These Green Man Charm Earrings bring a very old and powerful legend to your collection of nature-based or fantasy-based jewellery.

The Green Man in myth and legend

Images of the Green Man have been around for thousands of years. He is a symbol with a  mysterious origin and history.  It has survived many interpretations, continuing in the same form to this day.  Although we know very little about his beginnings and his worship, it is a testament to the widespread reach of his character that he is still remembered and worshipped to this day.

The Green Man is believed to have begun as a pre-Christian entity. He is a spirit of nature personified as a man.  His earliest images have been dated long before the coming of the Christian religion in pictures dating back before the days of the Roman Empire.  From then on, his image is found throughout the Roman world and beyond.  He has been found as far away as India.

Despite his wide ranging popularity, he is most often associated with Celtic tradition, particularly in Britain and France.  There are very many images found in these countries and a consistency in the way in which he has been portrayed.

The Green Man is almost always depicted as a man’s face from middle aged to elderly. He appears among the wild of the forest.  His face is always surrounded by leaves, vines, and flowers to illustrate that he is from the natural world.  Indeed, the variations in his images reflect way in which the natural world is both unique and consistent.

Although the Green Man is often surrounded by the greenery, there have been archaeological finds of images in which the leaves and vines emanate from his mouth, ears, and other facial orifices, as well as depictions of his face made up completely of nature—facial lines carefully crafted as vines with his skin the very leaves themselves.
